    im a big fella (6'8 350ish /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif) and my seats/seat belts...well...lol...i often find myself holding on to anything i can to keep from flying about...window crank, passenger seatbelt...passenger headrest...anything

    what im wondering is if there is a way to lock the seatbelt in place, of if anyone else has had similar problems staying in the seat and found a solution

    They make those "lock's" for child seat's. Not saying Your a child, but they really clamp down on the belt's. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    If you didn't want to go the five point route, older Volvos (circa 1970) had a non-retracting lap/shoulder belt. You adjusted the length of the lap and shoulder belts manually and they stayed-put. 'Run them tight and you couldn't reach the radio. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
